Upon purchasing F1 2011 I decided to start my career with Lotus. In that team I consistently finished ahead of my teammate Jarno Trulli and finished the season in 19th place. This was enough for me to secure a drive with Williams next season. Mark Webber became drivers champion after a season long tustle with Button that lasted to the final race at Brazil. From the first few races at Williams I knew it was a decent car and I begun to secure some podiums and my first win came at Catalunya. Halfway through the season Vettel was quite a long way in front in the standings but I clawed my way back and brought it to a two way shootout for the title in the final race at Brazil. Starting from pole and in heavy rain I controlled the race perfectly and finished ahead of Vettel which secured me the drivers title.
